Anticipated reasons for restriction

Refugee Resettlement and Support Contract Extension

By virtue of paragraph(s) 5 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972.

Explanation of Reasons

Reason restricted justification

This appendix is not for publication as it contains exempt information within Paragraph 5 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972, being information relating to information in respect of which a claim to legal professional privilege could be maintained in legal proceedings. Further, it is considered that, in all the circumstances, the public interest in maintaining this exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing this information. While there may be a public interest in disclosing this information, namely that it promotes full transparency it is felt that, on balance, this is outweighed by other factors in favour of maintaining the exemption, namely the need for the County Council to obtain confidential legal advice.
